machinery for any when created. >> is a printer a misnomer? >> it just a little confusing to people. a 3-d printer works similarly to a 2-d printer. with a 3-d printer, you take a 3-d model that is virtual on your screen and you make it a physical 3-d model. and in years and industrial designers, architects, -- engineers, industrial designers, and architects get it. now they have access to it. they can have it on their desktop. they can make prototypes. if they do not like it, they can throw it away and make another one. they can make a model and make another one. in the old days, this would take like a month to make a model. you could reiterate multiple times a year.

here? >> this is maker bot plastic. two kinds of material. the maker bot appeal is for the maker bot replicator 2. the other is for the maker bot replicator 2x. we joke that it is noodles. this is the material that you feed into the machine to make anything that you want. >> what is in your hand? >> this is a v6 ford engine block. ford sent it to uyss. it is the real model for a real one. i am a total gear head. i love this model. i love engines. i take engines apart and put
6:58 pm
them together. i have never seen the inside of an engine. i always have to sought it in half. by making it on my maker bot, i can see where the coolidge goes -- coolant goes. getting a maker bot is also educational and how things are made in the manufacturing process and the world around them. >> where did you come up with the idea? >> 3-d printers have been around for 25 years. but they were missions that were really expensive. i wanted 1 -- they were machines that were really expensive. i wanted one. my friends and i started tinkering. when it worked, we quit our jobs and worked on this so everyone could have went. ceo and cofounder
